Elderly People

Volume 488: debated on Friday 27 February 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what estimate he has made of the percentage of households where one or more persons is over 80 years in (a) Eastbourne constituency, (b) East Sussex and (c) England in 2008-09. (258894)

I have been asked to reply.

Recent estimates for Eastbourne constituency and East Sussex are not available.

For England, the most recent estimate is that 8 per cent. of all households have at least one member aged 80 or over. This is based on an average of the latest three years of the Survey of English Housing (2005-06, 2006-07 and 2007-08).
